1. Before school care begins at 6:45 AM St. George School Time. Children may get out of the car when the 6:45AM bell rings.
2. After Care hours are until 5:30 PM (plan C and E) and 6:00 PM (plan D only). Enrollment in Plan D is required upon 5th late pickup. The program does not operate on holidays or early dismissal days.
3. The After-School Program has three basic components: A) Snack; b) indoor and outdoor activities and c) homework time for students in 2nd – 8th grade
4. Making arrangements for extra-curricular activities is the responsibility of the parent. The After Care Director must be notified of these events in writing, including the name of the person responsible for signing out. A coach or other responsible adult must sign out the children leaving After Care for an activity. Children are never “sent” to an activity without being signed out. Arrangements should be made with an adult to ensure the safe arrival of children returning to After Care from an activity.
5. Children will only be released to those people authorized in writing by a parent or guardian. E-mailed letters will not be accepted. The authorized pickup list for school carpool or emergencies does not apply to After Care pickup.
6. Children who choose not to follow rules will be given time out. Children who continue to make poor choices regarding rules will have activities restricted. If poor behavior continues a student may be subject to suspension or expulsion from the program. Fighting will result in an immediate suspension or expulsion from the program. Bullying will not be tolerated.
7. Only children who are enrolled may attend the program. Arrangements for overnight guests must be made outside of the program.
8. Parents should refrain from talking on their cell phone during sign out and pickup. Your child has been at school all day and is anxious to see you. Please give them the attention they deserve.
